-All this talk about poor quality work is depressing. ​ So here'​s ​some pictures of good socket job to compare against. ​ We're not doing anything special here.  I just decided to take a picture of an ECU I happened to be working on today. ​ If the shop or friend you're asking to do work on your ECU can't say every one he does looks just like this, be worried. ​ If they actually say they sometimes destroy a chip getting it out, be VERY worried!! ​ If they ask what's a socket, run!!!+All this talk about poor quality work is depressing. ​ So here are some pictures of good work to compare against. ​ We're not doing anything special here.  I just decided to take a picture of an ECU I happened to be working on today. ​ If the shop or friend you're asking to do work on your ECU can't say every one he does looks just like this, be worried. ​ If they actually say they sometimes destroy a chip getting it out, be VERY worried!! ​ If they ask what's a socket, run!!!

-They should ALL come out like this.  No chip should ever be damaged, no pin should be bent, no trace should be broken.  Nice, clean work using professional equipment. ​ Anything less is risking damage to your ECU.  This particular socket job took all of 20 minutes. ​ If your guy says it's going to take an hour using equipment that looks like he picked it up at Radio Shack on his way home...it'​s not a good sign.+They should ALL come out like this.  No chip should ever be damaged, no pin should be bent, no track should be broken.
